Arthur Machen and GdT
The figure of Gianfranco de Turris is one that allows very little space for rhetoric, especially around his person. Yet, if there is an occasion that deserves to be celebrated, it is the fulfillment of an anniversary - that of sixty years of career - which already only with its numerical consistency, well hints at the role he played in the dissemination of literature of the Imaginary and all that is Fantastic. Hence the idea that brought together colleagues, old friends and new generations for this collective tribute, a miscellany of themed contributions and essays that have together the friendly caliber of the celebration and the analytical approach of Festschrift academic. All the fundamental stages of de Turris' journey beyond the threshold of the literary Elsewhere - from the Lovecraftian studies to the Tolkienian criticism, from the disputes over science fiction to the emergence of an Italian streak in the Fantastico - are therefore retraced by the voice of those who worked and still collaborates with him; the result is a variegated mosaic, whose tesserae often coincide with memories, anecdotes and facts, which reveal much also of man, as well as of the scholar.
